Good seafood as casual as it gets

Eating seafood out on the pier/dock at this hole in the wall is as basic as it gets. The last time I tried to eat here there was a line that looked to be an hour wait (end of Spring Break week). This time my wife and I walked right in and ordered our meal at the window and found... read more

Went for more delicious seafood in Destin in my 4 day trip. Sampled the fried shrimp, fried triggerfish, and gumbo all of which were delicious.

We have returned again this year to see if Dewey's again can be our favorite place to eat in Destin and YES it is! Wonder why we go anywhere else. Ate somewhere else last night and let's say it was good but I could have had better. This is the location to go to went to the other one last... More

I love Deweys, both the original and the AC version on the harbor. Great grilled shrimp. The Harbor version is a more traditional restaurant while the original is outdoor seating right on the water.

We had fish caught on a deep sea fishing trip. Deweys will cook it it if you purchase the platter which is fries hush puppy coleslaw it was a large portion. We coul not believe how much food it was. The drive back to the place had us all second guessing our choice. But it was busy being Friday night.... More

in my opinion this place has the BEST seafood gumbo in the Destin area. This is the place we always make it a point to go to and always seafood gumbo and hot crab dip (that is their other AWESOME menu item!). There are 2 Crab traps: one on Okaloosa Island and one on Crystal Beach. Both have equally good... More

Dewey's is strategically placed right on the beach. Be sure you get a table out on the porch for a great view of the boats going by while you eat. I got the trout sandwich for lunch which was a special and it was very good. My husband got the captains platter which was good but nothing you couldn't get... More

We went to Dewey Destin by boat, because we had come back in from a day of fishing in the Gulf. I ordered a Grilled Fish Basket that came with "Mahi Mahi" covered in some type of sauce, served with boiled new potatoes and a small ear of corn. Cost for the basket was right around $15. The fish was... More
